Wayne State University professor Saeed Khan joins the rogue's gallery of Middle East studies academics, and others, rewriting American history to advance Islamic supremacism. Reporting for Campus Watch, Michigan writer Harry Onickel covers a recent lecture in which Saeed---as part of an annual series featuring both a Muslim and Jewish professor---had the temerity to claim, among other whoppers, that Muslims discovered the New World, explored North America with Columbus, and invented blues music. Even worse, no one, including Khan's Wayne State colleague and lecture partner Howard Lupovitch, called him on it.
Onickel's article appears today at the American Spectator:
Of the hundred or so people in the audience, the vast majority were Jewish. Lupovitch and Khan, being good friends, sparked a jovial atmosphere, kibitzing throughout their introductions. Although a stated aim of the lectures was to "connect members of both demographics through exploring hot-button topics," Khan made outlandish claims for a Muslim history in the New World based more on Islamic supremacism than facts. He was aided by Lupovitch, who not only failed to challenge Khan's patently false tales, but asserted that "parallels and similarities" exist between Jewish and Muslim immigration to the U.S.
